2016 Claxton's Exploration Series Highland Park 4 Year Old Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Orkney Islands, SCOTLAND
$110.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

Tasting note: Very much a baby HP, in fact, easily the youngest ever to make it to market (there have been a swag of eight year olds, so clearly this distillate has its charms when young). Matured in a single Bourbon barrel. Perfect gold. Shows little of the peat you might expect, rather the nose is more floral with soft orchard fruits, in particular, pears. The honeyed-barley distillery character is accented at the finish, converging with a coastal tang. Style wise, compares with Highland Park's inuagural 2020 cask strength release. The smoke really takes back seat, but the balance is impressive for such a youngster. Non chill filtered. 50% Alc./Vol.

Notes from Claxton's... Nose: Herbal sweetness. Heather. The smokiness is soft and scented (like a sweet ash). Palate: Soft ashy-peatiness at first before vanilla and sweet heather comes through. Finish: Long, spicy finish with plenty of vanilla, sweet smoke and oak.
